It's pretty much a certainty that big changes will happen, so we should be slowing down our CO2 emissions.

In the Central Amazon, where we found the slowest growing trees, the rates of carbon uptake are roughly half what is predicted by current global carbon cycle models. As a result, those models—which are used by scientists to understand how carbon flows through the Earth system—may be overestimating the forests' capacity to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
